The delators were the Roman informers. The problem of delators grew into perhaps the most hateful feature of Roman social life. Not merely overt actions of treason against the state, but words which could be construed as reflections on the Caesar were brought within the meaning of the law, and the delators who brought forward charges or evidence which led to condemnation were handsomely rewarded. No viler machinery of demoralization could have been devised. Delation became a trade and no man was safe from it.
